Washington 8 at Philadelphia 31


1984 Week 17 - Friday, June 15, 1984
Washington Federals(2-14) at Philadelphia Stars(15-1)(-18)
Attendance: 22,582

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Chuck Fusina passed for two touchdowns and rookie Bryan Thomas ran for two more as the Philadelphia Stars rolled over the Washington Federals 31-8 Friday night, setting a United States Football League record with their 16th regular-season victory.

Washington made its mark at the other end of the scale with 15th loss against two victories.

The Stars, 16-1, who clinched the Atlantic Division title and a playoff spot last weekend, led 17-0 at halftime after Fusina threw for 152 yards while Washington quarterbacks Mike Hohensee and Reggie Collier combined for just 6 yards passing.

The Federals' Mike Guess intercepted Fusina's pass in the end zone with 9:35 left in the first quarter to spoil Philadelphia's first touchdown drive.

It was Fusina's first interception in 112 throws.

But the Stars got the ball back when Jonathan Sutton intercepted Hohensee two minutes and 27 seconds later.

The Stars took over on the Federals' 39 yard line and Bryan Thomas capped the drive on a 4-yard touchdown run with 4:19 left in the period.

An onside kick by David Trout set up the second Stars touchdown. Mark McCants recovered the ball at the Washington 39 and Fusina threw a 22-yard touchdown pass to Steve Folsom with 1:49 left in the half.

Trout's 29-yard field goal made it 17-0 with 48 seconds left in the half and Fusina threw 21 yards to Scott Fitzkee to make it 24-0 with 9:13 left in the third quarter.
